The hotel is a 15 min walk from xi men train station and about 10mins away from the shopping district of xi men ding. We stayed at a triple room for 3 nights. The room was slightly small without much space to open our luggage. The hotel's interior decoration is stunning with tons of vintage stuff. There is usually 4 front desk staff on duty (3 at night) so you dont have to wait too long to be served. They were helpful in food recommendations and calling taxi for us. My main gripes about the hotel are the (i) poor soundproofing and (ii) cigarette smoke. We got assigned probably the worst room (2001), which is next to the laundry room, first out of the lift, and at a major intersection. As the partition walls are paper thin, I got woken up multiple times by luggage rolling and loudly talking guests in the wee hours of the morning. One day at 7 or 8am some wise guy decided to do the laundry (which was deafening being on the other side of the wall). The hotel staff told me that I would be charged 400TWD since i did not make the request before noon. The ground floor lobby is filled with cigarette smoke so much that we gave up trying to sit at the tables there. Perhaps there could be signs to keep smokers away from the entrance and hotel staff to enforce a non smoking zone. The toilet also has a continual lingering smell of cigarette smoke as well.
